Carlsbad had three members of its fire department who spent the past two weeks at the National Fire Academy, located in Emmitsburg, Maryland. This is the nation’s best training academy for advanced level emergency response courses. Once accepted, tuition and stay on campus are paid for by the U.S. Fire Administration.


Congratulations to Carlsbad Battalion Chief Alex Luna, Lieutenant Gerard Jaquez and Assistant Chief John Majerus on their selection and completion of this important class. This training will help the Carlsbad Fire Department better respond to potential HazMat emergencies in the area.
